Secret Chicago Real Estate

A day in the life.

I came across an UNLISTED 3 bed, 2 bath duplex down with a big family room last week. Parking, deck, nice location, near an "EL"... just a great place for 369K.

I wanted to buy it on the spot... my wife said no. Too much going on with a baby on the way and and new rehab projects etc... and we do want a house in a couple years but. I'm a sucker for a great deal. Plus, this place is big enough and a good enough location to start a family in. But alas, the timing isn't right. But what about your timing?

So, I have spent all morning clamoring for a client or prospective client to take a look at this. It's a home run, slam dunk kind of place for the money. One client is interested and is finding a time to see it today or tomorrow.

In this market, people think they have time. But the great new places at the right deals go fast. For instance, this building is a 6 unit new conversion. All the other units sold out before list, or hit market and sold under 30 days.

If you are in this price point, I know you will like it... or it will at least be in the running. I still think there is time for selections and it looks like it will deliver in 60 to 90 days... in by next spring.
